Albert D'Souza, Rest in Heavenly Peace


Albert D'Souza

One of life's truly great guys

Albert D’Souza passed away peacefully on February 23, 2021 at Mackenzie Health Hospital, in his 80th year. He is loved, cherished and survived by his wife, Diana, of 47 years, his children, Elissa, Evelyn (Gianluca), Alberta and Aaron (Lisa), and his grandchildren, Lilia, Matthew and Alex. He is survived by his siblings, Filo, Innocensia, Diego, and Eudes, and their families.  He is also survived by his brothers-in-law Willie and Bonnie Lobo, and their families.

Albert will be fondly remembered by his family as a loving and devoted husband and father, a good and kind-hearted human being who went out of his way to help others, and a strong and energetic man who worked hard all his life. He lived a full and good life, enjoyed his work as an Avionics Engineer, loved spending time with his family, and always had a bright smile on his face. His friends will remember his love for fishing and for good food, his uncanny ability to build and repair anything, his giving nature, and his pleasant personality which was contagious to everyone he met.  His presence was felt and marked by all who encountered him, and he will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

To our dearest husband and dad, we loved you your whole life, and we'll miss you for the rest of ours. You are no longer physically with us, but you will forever be in our hearts and thoughts.

A private service will be held by the family at a later date.

Condolences can be left at the R.S. Kane Website. or <>

A GIFT FOR YOU: History of Kenya at the Olympics

THIS IS A great gift to those of you who played hockey, watched hockey or want to learn about an exceptional element of Kenya hockey history. Dil Bahra, who is considered the authority on Kenya hockey history made this presentation to Kenya Hockey Olympians and their guests in a Zoom get-together on May 30. The fact that they came together is an achievement, but if you could have listened to reminiscing and banter, it was something else. Most of these guys are in the 80s and vijana are in their 70s. But most have clear memories of the games, the results and all the other magic that was created at the Olympics. Dil Bahra has allowed me reproduction of his presentation so that you can keep a copy of it for yourself.

This is a very special man. We salute you.

Albert D'Souza, Rest in Heavenly Peace
